Indian Supreme Court made it compulsory for everyone to link Aadhaar card with mobile number. Now, Vodafone is also sending SMSes to their users to link Aadhaar card with Vodafone mobile number. Though, in past, we posted the process. But now, in this article, we are going to show you how to link Aadhaar card with Vodafone mobile number easily and very quickly without having any problems.
Now, some of you may thinking that, what will happen if you don’t do so. The answer is, in that case your sim card will be deactivated permanently within February 2018. This is actually a good decision by Indian government to prevent various crimes related with internet (Cyber Crime) and telephones. After going through this process, your Vodafone number will be linked with your Aadhaar card and if anyone does any crime with their phone, it will be easy to detect him/her for Police.
There is a great number of active sim cards which were sold without any documents or verified with someone else’s documents. But after February 2018, all those sim cards will be deactivated. So, actually it’s a good move towards making the telecommunication and internet clean from anonymous users.

Will I Have To Pay Money To The Retailer?
Now, this is an important question. I’ve seen many retailers asking for money from the users to link Aadhaar card with Vodafone mobile number. Some of the retailers also say that you have to pay small amount of money, because they have bought the bio-metric machine they are using during fingerprint scanning.
But the answer is “NO”. You don’t have to pay even a Paise to them. Just think, if you don’t link it, after February 2018, your number will be deactivated permanently. At the same time Vodafone will also loose a customer. None of the telcos want to loose users. So, they pays commission to the retailers for linking each Aadhaar card with Vodafone number. So, you don’t have to pay separately.
What If Your Number Is Registered With Anyone Else’s Name?
This also a simple answer. You can link your Aadhaar card with any Vodafone number you have. Once you go through the linking process, the number will be registered with your name and the sim card will become your own sim card with verified documents. But don’t link your family member’s number with your Aadhaar card. If you do so, all of their sim cards will be registered with your name. Then their sim cards will not be their anymore. So, keep this thing in your mind when you are linking Aadhaar card with Vodafone mobile number.
Well for me it was different story. 1st i created a Vodafone account at their portal with my phone number . After login i found the sim was registered for someone else with completely different address . Then i linked this mobile number with my aadhaar number at local retailers’ shop. After 1 week I got a message from Vodafone care that my request was rejected & they want some additional documents for which I have to call 888. But I found that number is invalid.
If someone known any workarounds then please reply me here.
